Last month, we reported that Warner Bros. is seeking a female director for their upcoming stand alone Wonder Woman movie, which will have Gal Gadot reprising her title role after being introduced in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. During an interview with Forbes, filmmaker Lexi Alexander (Green Street Hooligans, Punisher: War Zone) revealed that Warner Bros. has made an offer to a female filmmaker, although she wouldn't reveal who it is.
"If she says yes, everybody will be very happy, including me. Still, I don't see at this point why anyone would say yes. There is huge pressure. If [a female director] does fail, then all of a sudden it's 'all women suck at directing.'"
"I can't say they wouldn't consider me, but they haven't reached out."
In related news, journalist Mark Hughes revealed four female directors who reportedly are in contention for the Wonder Woman directing gig, Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Mimi Leder (Deep Impact), Michelle Maxwell MacLaren (Breaking Bad) and Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight).
Do it seems WB has apparently made an offer to a director to helm Wonder Woman. Bigelow, Leder, or MacLaren?— Mark Hughes (@markhughesfilms) November 8, 2014
@CorySims7 Nothing more than I've said before, as far as who WB might pick. But I think it's b/w those 3, maybe also Hardwicke.— Mark Hughes (@markhughesfilms) November 8, 2014
Naturally, it hasn't been confirmed that those filmmakeres are on Warner Bros.' list or not. Do you have a favorite among these four directors? Or is there another filmmaker you would like to see tackle Wonder Woman? Chime in with your thoughts below.
